IOC has finally come to its senses and is investigating weather or not China has underage gymnastics. I think any rulings will be made after the Olympics. The way I see it, cheating is cheating. You break a rule, be prepared to face the consequences.

I worry however, that the apologist, blundering IOC may find something and do nothing to China because they are China, whereas our Roider chick lost all her medals.

Agreed. The Today Show had some guy on off the top of the 7 o'clock hour saying that this case is simular to the North Korean's '92(might have been 91) World Championship team. They waited a while to say that team was disqualified cause they had a girl say she was 15 3 years in a row. He thinks nothing will come of this and if something does it might be years down the road.

Its weird how China has such strong restrictions by what is posted on the internet, yet it looks like this embarassment leaked through.
